For Sunday: Olive Oyl does the Broadway Samba

olive oyl


This is a very nice Popeye cartoon from 1944. It’s more of a Road picture a la Bing Crosby and Bob Hope than the usual slugfest; Bluto (who’s in wonderful voice) and Popeye do a beautiful duet, and then they meet the ravishing Carioca incarnation of Olive Oyl, who sings (in Portuguese and English) the “Broadway Samba.”

Ole!

    I really enjoyed that Loren. Popeye was a great dancer wasn’t he. I’d forgotten that. I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again, the old ones are the best!
